It's Official we have relinquished HC advantage to the lakers

Celtics now have a worse record than the lakers ,part of me beleives they will get it going in the playoffs and then the other part of me thinks no the new faces and the trading of perkins has destroyed whatever they had the big four aren't playing like the big four which up until recently was stellar.

its rather disheartening to be honest but i knew it would happen i knew we would fail to execute towards the end and when Cunningham hit that shot i knew it was the game winner in essence  i don't care about the loss to be quite fair i i care that for the first time our record is worse than the lakers record with a few games to go that really hurts becuase ot me they are the best team in the west and to go through a playoff game without home court advantage really upsets me becuase its all they fought for at the end of the day  it will most likely get worse the games get a hell of a lot tougher after this stretch and i can see them being the 3rd seed when all is said and done i dunno if thats a good choice for them seeing how they struggled with philly and that monster in new york isn't firing on all cylinders yet and that kinda scares me a little  i tihkn the 1 seed is the best seed for them.

we are struggling and we cannot score  or execute at times i hate that i'm saying this but a drastic change is needed otherwise i don't think the celtics will get out of the second round there is just no continuity reason being the celtics best four players have played far more games combined this season and their bench to be honest has let them down full of injured folk who are on their last legs and really can't contribute anymore  i really hope i am wrong but i just don't think this year is a championship year the celtics bench averages 22.9 points per game or somewhere around that number with the names it has should average close to 40 points a game  yes its marred by injuries  that being said i believe the trade is better for the celtics and even if they never traded perkins i am pretty sure the celtics would still be as lackadaisical as they are now.

 

Doc rivers has to think now about resting his stars they have lost the 1 seed in the final 20 games very very disheartening and will definitely lose the 2nd seed also that is only a question of when they will struggle to  get any continuity and chemistry going on that bench so having fresher legs in the playoffs will be the only advantage they could have what upsets me more than anything is the pain the of last year losing the championship   in  game 3  or 4 basically lost them the championship that game in my opinion had championship all over it the celtics should really have fought harder to have a better record than the lakers   have only closed a game off on the the road once i think that was against Detroit correct me if i'm wrong  they don't have that ability i mean this team has never swept an opponent ever
